The PaperShelter challenge for this week

Hi and good morning! It's mid week and once again time for the double posting on my blog. It is strange to have to challenges going up the same day. Anyway, the theme for this weeks challenge over at TPS Challenges is fun and brightful, we are all doing
Flower Power
Fun isn't it? I knew right away what image I wanted to use for this one. She is cute in a kind of neardy way and fits perfect to this challenge, meet the "Hippie Girl". Wonderful to colour and for this fun theme it was no problem to get a card together. Have kind of had some mojo problems the last couple of weeks. Mostly because I have so much problems with my neck and shoulders. Just hope that it won't last forever. -smile-


Anyway, back to my card. When I think hippie and flowerpower. Hade made stuff comes to mind, scarfs, crocheted stuff, hand made clothes that are "blinged up" in all sort of ways. So with this in mind I took out some yarn and crocheted a few flowers for my card and combinded them with flowers from Prima and Pentaloo. Also a kind of funky, bright coloured bunch of DP from one of the first scrap kits I ever bought. Never got used to any page in my albums as I got very mad when the papers was folded. No one would buy a folded paper. Nutsy people, I left that club very quickly. LoL. But I am glad I hung on to those papers. Perfect for this card! I have followed the sketch from Friday Sketchers this week. I do hope I remember to link it up when I get back home... -smile-


So now it would be great to see some of your flower power creations. You might even have a different approach to the theme than I have. I would love to find out! Don't forget to use one of the superduper cheep images from the PaperShelter to have a shot on the voucher of $15 that you can spend in the store. Now there is even some digi paper sets up for sale. They do look really lovely.

Till later on today I leave you with love n hugs
